VeChain is the 28th largest cryptocurrency with a market capitalization of $463 billion. Its token VET is currently trading at $0.0083 with 24 hours gains of 4.48 percent, at the time of writing.
It means that vechain believes that their token is underpriced so they are buying it back. Good news for investors

VeChain, however, is not the only one to come up with the buy back plan. Earlier this week, Tron Foundation announced a $20 million buyback plan that is part of its initiative to boost community activity and market stability. The official announcement reported it to be the largest Tron buyback plan so far and on January 1, 2020, it will reveal its TRX holding.
This month itself, crypto exchange Bitfinex announced a transparency initiative to provide a full view of the buyback and burning of its LEO exchange token. Binance, the largest cryptocurrency exchange already had a buyback and burn plan for its native digital currency Binance Coin (BNB).
This buyback plan followed the big news of Walmart China joining Vechain and PwC for its new blockchain traceability program.
